Return to the booth for almost 300,000 Tesla. Electric car giant will recall 285,000 vehicles from the market Chinese after an investigation showed that its driver-assistance software could cause collisions, the government announced on Friday (June 25). This is the last concern of the brand of Elon Musk, a pioneer of the car that drives alone. It is under investigation by Chinese authorities after several fatal collisions in recent months.
“Due to problems with the speed control system, the driver can easily turn it on by mistake”, noted the authorities in their report. “This can cause a sudden increase in speed and, in extreme cases, cause a collision”.
Tesla, who said the alert concerns some of the Models 3 and Y, imported or made in China, will contact the affected owners and replace their software with a new free version. The problem comes after the automaker also had to deal with numerous complaints on social media from its Chinese customers about quality and service issues.
